Xolile Tshabalala To Star In A New SABC3 Show

One of my favourite local actors will be back on our screens in April as part of SABC3's new show's cast.

Tshabalala who garnered great reviews and throngs of fans in Mzansi as Julia on Generations  is said to star High Rollers opposite other prolific actors like Fezile Mpela as I reported earlier this year

This new 26-part drama series is an inter-generational family drama centering on three 'brothers', the Machiavellian casino kingpin David, his flawed and volatile older brother Paul and David's trusted right-hand man, Thato 'TT' Mogale (Mpela) who are divided by their love for money, family and God. 

From the boardroom to the bedroom, each man plays the hand dealt to him as they navigate a precarious tightrope between loyalty and betrayal.

Each one-hour episode will delve into the world anchored by King's casino and five-star hotel complex, an upmarket establishment in Johannesburg's north-eastern suburbs. It was built from scratch by David King (Coleman), the youngest King brother, a slick and ruthless businessman who always gets what he wants.

His brother, Paul, is an ex-con who resolves to clean up his life, with the aid of his new-found religious faith. His release from prison on probation sends the King family into a tailspin, exposing raw nerves and unresolved questions around the fateful night when patriarch Charles King was mysteriously murdered.

Mogale ( Fezile Mpela) is David's childhood friend and the public face of King's casino, with his charismatic, extroverted nature, complementing David's single-minded business savvy. As a farmworker's child taken in to the King household and raised as one of their own - yet always kept at a distance - he sees it as his personal responsibility to pull the family back together.

Mogale's wife, Gugu (Xolile Tshabalala), an ambitious player development executive, gives the casino's high rollers whatever they want, but is unable to give TT the one thing he wants - a child. Her brother, the flamboyantly gay Kenny Ngubeni, runs the local burlesque revue showbar at the casino.

It would be great to see Xolile back on our screens acting instead of doing those McCain ads. Lets face it when an actor has become a household name you do not really expect to be seeing them in these kinda ads unless if they are endorsement commercials. 

Welcome back Ms Tshabalala, I personally missed seeing your talent in action.  

High Rollers premieres on SABC3, on Tuesday, 2 April at 8:30.
